School parties are among the most colorful and festive of all social celebrations; surely such a fun festivity deserves some bouncy, creative music. It just would not be a festivity without some fun tunes.

The ultimate school party playlist could include:

Baby by Justin Bieber. Young ladies in particular will applaud and cheer this choice.
Who Says? by Selena Gomez
You Belong With Me by Taylor Swift
Party in the USA by Miley Cyrus. This is the ultimate festive song for young people in particular.
Love Bug by the Jonas Brothers
Be Cool to Your School by the Beach Boys
Weíre All in this Together by the cast of High School Musical
Friday by Rebecca Black. OK, some people might get annoyed but everyone will have fun with it.
Hey Soul Sister by the cast of Glee
Whatís My Name? by Rihanna
Girls (Rule the World) by Beyonce. Encourage the girls to sing this together and be proud!
Aside from some vibrant tunes, any good school party should come complete with a full selection of equally colorful party supplies. These could include a plastic or paper mache centerpiece in the form of an apple, a school book, or a backpack; additional paper mache apples and pencils hanging from the ceiling would make another nice accent, as well as a scene setter that resembles a classroom.

Itís not often that kids get to cut loose and have fun at school, enjoying scrumptious treats and dancing to funky music. ĎStudy upí and plan the ultimate school party today! Creative idea: Matching or contrasting color decor items such as plates and cups will work for any theme ideas. If you specify the type of clothing for a social event like summer causal, give a few examples of what is acceptable and more importantly what isn't. When all is said and done, favors given to those guests who were able to attend will both feel appreciated and be reminded of the day whenever they look at that favor.

School parties are the perfect time for homemade party supplies such as, banners, flags and party streamers. Kids always admire and appreciate these decorative little tokens. All of these homemade party supplies will make your school party very special. Most often a School party is held as a celebration, therefore colorful balloons, noise makers and banners are perfect for the School party. This is not a day for tests, but for laughter and fun.

Your school party guests will benefit from making a variety of the handmade party supplies prior to the party. Paper streamers are the perfect homemade party supply for students to create for a school party. Let them be a part of and contribute to the celebration. These paper streamers can be made by looping 1 by 5 inch pieces of construction paper into circles. Then the circles are connected together to form long links and these links can ultimately become be hung from the ceiling creating handmade party streamers perfect for a school party. Kids will find it easy to follow these instructions. Handmade party supplies like personalized banners, colorful streamers and homemade balloon bouquets are great additions to the party.

Most likely, the students will enjoy the homemade party supplies and other party goods such as noise makers, beach balls and glow sticks. Make the festivity as bright and colorful as possible. These party supply items along with inflatables and homemade banners made from a variety of materials using the school colors will most likely compare to no others and make your school party very special.


A school party should be a wholesome, enjoyable experience savored equally by teachers and students; also savored will be the school party cake that will prove every bit as sweet as the little ones who eat it. Cake is an expected component at every party celebration.

The most basic type of school party cake will be a basic round or sheet cake emblazoned with the school name, colors, or logo; or an artistic combination of all of these elements. The kids are sure to appreciate this highly personal touch. This cake could be virtually any flavor (though kids everywhere tend to favor chocolate), and could come topped with butter cream or whipped cream icing. The cake will taste as good as it looks to be sure.

A more general school party cake could come topped with party supplies that fit the overall theme of the cake and symbolize the scholastic experience. These could include small plastic apples, books, chalkboards and classroom desks. Kids are sure to appreciate these easily recognized symbols. Again, this cake could come in any size, shape or flavor desired.

Novelty school party cakes also have a place at academic parties, especially if those parties are celebrated in honor of an upcoming holiday or a student birthday. Kids just love these fun and endlessly creative cakes. The host could present a round cake shaped like an apple, complete with red butter cream or strawberry icing. Or a chocolate sheet cake with vanilla icing could morph into an edible blackboard; one that bears a greeting or message of celebration for staff and students. Imagine the wonder of young guests when they see this crafty cake.

When presenting a novelty school party cake at an academic function, just make sure that the confection is designed in good tasteóin more ways than one!

For a school party look for decorations that are easy to put up stay up and that can be thrown away all during the same day. If you like you can have the kidís help you put up decorations and bring in treats for the party to make them feel more involved in having a good time. Decorations like wall hangings for some of the minor holidays like presidentís day make a really good way to decorate the classroom for the holiday season. Plus these wall hangings are decorations that you can leave up a little while.

If you are having a party for a different reason then you should go with a fun party theme that the kids are likely to get into. Such a party theme could be Sponge bob Square pants. For this theme get lots of yellow streamers, and balloons, and donít forget the Sponge bob themed paper supplies like table clothes, napkins and paper plates.

Choose some fun and easy games for the kids to play during the school party. You can find lots of outdoor games like Bowling on the Green or instructions for building a pyramid. You can also just get a game of soccer together or better yet, Crab Football, which is a game that the kids can really have fun playing. Youíll probably find that the kids persist in walking like crabs even after the game has ended.

However you can get the kids out of the game playing mode by offering up some great food items. Pizza is a school party all time favorite and itís easy to order. A potluck is also a good idea, so ask the kids to have their parents help them prepare something nice for everyone to eat at the school party. You can even put up a sign up sheet so the kids can let everyone know what theyíll be bringing.

School History, Facts and Educational Resources

Add an educational twist to any birthday party, holiday celebration, or theme party.  Share the history of the School theme to the guests.  Play some free printable educational party games.  Shhh don't tell the kids that they are learning!

Based at academic institutions throughout the world, the Back to school School Party involves an advanced brand of constructive, productive fun in a classroom setting. This is not just a typical kids' party, in any sense.

The School Back to school Partyís probable origins can be found in the one-room schoolhouse of the late 19th century, where children around the world could mark special occasions like student and teacher birthdays, the first and last days of school or back to school events, etc. Talk about a festivity with some classic and time honored origins! Guests might enjoy homebaked goods like breads, cake and cookies, and of course an apple for the teacher! They might also sing songs, recite poems and adages learned during school lessons, and work on art or writing projects. It makes sense that this would be a learning experience for kids.

As times have changed so have school parties; todayís scholastic fests might even take place outside the classroom, at places such as movie theaters, or at community centers and party places that offer activities like laser tag, paintball games and indoor sports. These days a school party doesn't have to take place at school. Even at classroom parties, kids are just as likely to watch DVDs or listen to CD players as they are to sing songs and pen poetry. Welcome to the high tech age, where child's play is more sophisticated.

Furthermore, some of todayís school parties take the form of childrenís work parties. At schools around the world, kids are spearheading and engaging in community projects while having some fun along the way.

Like its adult counterpart, a school-based work party can take many forms. Maybe a school environmental club agrees to clean a designated road each month, or an elementary school class plants a butterfly garden on school grounds. Then the children and their adult supervisors (generally teachers, scout leaders and parent volunteers) gather at a nearby pizza parlor, community center, ice cream shop or family restaurant for a festive celebration to honor their hard labor and solid accomplishments.

Make learning fun with the ultimate School Party! Plan ahead by including at start time for the day and if needed include a reasonable end time as well. Don't wait until the last minute to set up for a celebration, you will be hurried and stressed by the time the guests start to arrive. Plan ahead by including at start time for the day and if needed include a reasonable end time as well. The history of School has different interpretations by each person, so use your own judgement. Share these facts with friends at a celebration.
